Here’s an affair you won’t get in trouble for having.
It’s the sinfully delicious French Affair.
3/4 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. yellow chartreuse
1/2 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. cognac
In a cocktail shaker, muddle two hulled strawberries. Add the lemon juice, chartreuse, simple syrup, and cognac. Shake briefly with ice, and strain into a 12 oz. rocks glass. Top with crushed ice and garnish with a halved strawberry.
French affairs… everybody should have one.
